DETOX PROGRAM – RECOVERY AND ADDICTION MEDICINE PROGRAM (R.A.M.P)
The number of people struggling with addiction has skyrocketed in recent years. At Wooster Community Hospital, we want to be part of a broader solution – and do more than just resuscitate and treat those who overdose.
Inpatient Withdrawal Assistance Program for Adults
WCH is proud to offer a voluntary inpatient withdrawal assistance program for adults who are addicted to opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and related substances. We’re able to offer these services through a partnership with OneEighty, an integrated health system offering addiction and mental health services at multiple locations in the region. OneEighty’s addiction treatment program is led by Dr. Nicole Labor, an addiction medicine physician (addictionologist), with specialized training in treating people with substance abuse problems.
Our inpatient withdrawal treatment program accepts adults who are currently under the influence, experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms, or are otherwise appropriate for treatment. We accept most insurance plans.
Inpatient Withdrawal Treatment
Inpatient withdrawal treatment consists of a medically supervised hospital stay that typically lasts between 3 and 5 days and includes:
- Prescreening and admission, requiring a diagnosis of need by a licensed physician
- Assessment of patient’s needs, including medical history, physical, and lab tests
- Medical treatment and observation
- Discharge planning, including referral to an appropriate outpatient treatment facility and resources
Patients admitted to WCH’s inpatient withdrawal treatment program receive care from dedicated hospital personnel, including an attending physician, nursing staff, and an addiction medicine counselor. This ensures each patient receives the attention and supervision needed to safely undergo withdrawal while hospitalized. Each patient is assigned a recovery coach to offer assistance and support during their journey to sobriety.
